Nicola Harvey, Digital & Youth Engagement Lead, shares an exciting update from e-wellbeing:
I am delighted to announce that Brighton & Hove City Council, have recommissioned YMCA Dialogue’s e-wellbeing service, to deliver Mental Health Champions in schools and colleges for another three years!
Mental Health Champions is a youth-led project where students (also known as Champions), represent their peers to create ‘student-led actions’ and tackle stigma, by promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in their schools. In the past, the e-wellbeing team have supported Champions to explore a range of issues, including bullying, discrimination, homework stress, and loneliness.
See the video below, for highlights from e-wellbeing’s most recent Celebration Event:
I would also like to extend a huge thank you and well done, to members of the e-wellbeing team (Charlotte, Leon, and Raquel), and our volunteer youth ambassadors, for their hard work and dedication into making Mental Health Champions a success!
